Shake The Temple - 'The Devil's Approach' (video)

Ο ομώνυμος δίσκος των Shake The Temple
Οι Shake The Temple μας έρχονται από την Αυστραλία (Μελβούρνη). Hard rock / heavy metal τρίο, το οποίο χαρακτηρίζει την μουσική του κάπως έτσι: «rich heavy tones and power melodies inspired by vintage rock and metal». Το ντεμπούτο των Shake The Temple φέρει ως τίτλο το όνομα της μπάντας και κυκλοφόρησε προ μηνός...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Hot on the heels of their debut album, Australia’s Shake The Temple have announced the release of their second music video for their epic track ‘The Devil’s Approach’. A colossal production filmed in a secret location, this music video is something to behold.

A cinematic, movie-like setting in a maze of giant timber pillars, the video conjures up memories of 70’s horror and vintage metal that speaks volumes about this new band. It truly is a credit to this trio for bringing such theatre so rarely seen in music videos these days – especially for a band hailing from a usually restrained local rock scene.

According to lead singer John Joseph, the production was originally a pipe dream.

I wanted to capture the origins of the song and I knew it was going to be a big effort. So I started with a storyboard, then shared it with our video director and incredibly he had the balls to take it on!”, laughed Joseph.

This music video reflects the sheer determination of this power trio, but also the creative passion the band possesses. From the ‘Stranger Things’ teenage victim to the evil eyed villain, The Devil’s Approach music video commands attention right to the very end. Incredibly well filmed and edited, supported by a powerful live performance by the band.»

Bio: «Shake The Temple staked its arrival in late 2018 with the release of its debut single, Huntsman. The heavy-hitting single mixed sweeping melodies with fuming guitars are reminiscent of the 70s and 80s vintage metal.

But the Melbourne trio flipped things soon after, following up with an anthemic take on the city’s obsession with cosmetic surgery. Martini confirmed the versatility of the band, mixing spacious guitars with clever lyrics casting a darker light on high society.

The singles were supported by the band’s first live shows around Melbourne. Sadly, the band’s progress was brought to a sudden halt when lead singer and songwriter John Joseph suffered a brain aneurysm in February 2020. Admitted to emergency surgery, the project was left to wait until he recovered.

Yet, despite the seriousness of the operation, Joseph was inspired to continue the project and from his bed, orchestrated the release of 3 further singles in quick-fire succession. With three demos left in his arsenal, Joseph recruited video production guru Daniel Armstrong and together they produced 3 lyric videos to support the singles - all whilst the world went into lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Who I Am was released in May 2020, followed by Precious Lover just six weeks later in June 2020, and then the simmering If You And I Could Make It in July of the same year. Though the band still hadn’t featured in any of the videos at that time (due to COVID lockdowns and Joseph’s health), it would at least showcase the music.

This inspired move not only spawned three more cracking heavy rock tunes - but attracted the interest of Sliptrick Records in Europe. The band subsequently signed to the label. After Joseph’s recovery, the band returned to the studio to record two more tracks to complete what will be a 9 song debut album on the Sliptrick Records label. In 2021 Shake The Temple are set to release their debut album and return to the live circuit, with plans to tour Europe.»
